Cover illustration: The existence of the bis­(diethyl ether) adduct of WCl4 has been confirmed. Room-temperature X-ray diffraction studies of the adduct reveal two coordinated diethyl ether mol­ecules and establish the identity of the com­plex as trans-WCl4(Et2O)2.

Several decades after the bis­(diethyl etherate) of tungsten(IV) chloride was first mentioned in the literature, it has now at last been structurally characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, finally confirming its composition.

The ordering of two new variants of the X-phase derived from the Mn–Co–Ge system is com­pared with other members of the X-phase family and shows that the degree of disordering depends on the chemical com­position. No com­pletely ordered variants of the X-phase have yet been reported.
